How are jurors selected?

Each year, the State Election Commission provides Georgetown County with a list containing the names of registered voters, persons holding valid driver’s licenses, and persons with state identification cards. Duplicate names and persons under the age of 18 have already been stricken from the list by the state. This list is used by Georgetown County to create a computer file from which jurors are selected. The jury selection computer program ensures that jurors are selected completely at random. The Circuit Courts (General Sessions and Common Pleas) select jurors from throughout the entire county. Once selected, summonses are created and mailed to the persons selected for service.
